The benefits of our Schools First Aid training course

Schools First Aid - what is it all about?

  • First aid training for school staff is very important.
  • Our Schools First Aid course is especially suited for teachers and other school staff.
  • This course combines three courses, all of which are nationally accredited.
  • The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all employers to make arrangements to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.
  • This includes carrying out a risk assessment, appointing a suitable amount of first aiders and providing adequate first aid training.
  • Typically, first aiders will hold a valid certificate in either First Aid at Work (FAW) or Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW).
